ACT Chief Police Officer Justine Saunders has revealed that a fourth bikie gang has established itself in Canberra, after shots were fired last week at a Ngunnawal family home that used to be the residence of Comanchero member.

"If there's something that keeps me awake at night, it's gangs in Canberra," assistant commissioner Saunders said on ABC Canberra on Wednesday.

"In the sense of their serious organised criminal activity and their violent activity they undertake here."

Assistant Commissioner Saunders said that shots had been fired into a house at Ngunnawal on Tuesday last week. It was formerly a residence of a member of the Comanchero bikie gang.
